  • Eat Like a Sailor | Dine Like a Captain

    Join The Trustees, Old North Church & Historic Site, and The Fireplace for a culinary adventure you’ll not soon forget! Get a taste (literally!) of what life at sea was like during colonial times. Let Chef Jim Solomon of The Fireplace teach you about nautical cuisine … and discover the difference between what captains ate and what sailors ate by sampling two distinct menus. Participants will leave with a greater understanding of the dietary aspect of Boston’s history and class distinctions on board a ship. What is Old North’s connection to the sea? Many of Old North’s original pew owners and parishioners were sea captains and merchants, and in fact, our steeple was funded by the sale of logwood, a hot commodity in the 1730s but only made possible by the forced labor of enslaved Africans. That steeple, the tallest point in Boston until 1830, beckoned home those in the sea-faring industry and was often the most welcome site to those on board a ship just entering Boston Harbor. The Menu: PASSED HORS D’ OEUVRES Pickled Deviled Eggs Old Horse or Salt Junk Salt Cod Chowder with “Midshipmen’s Nuts” SAILORS Hard Tack “Bisket” with Weevils Peas Porridge with Pickled Sausage and Molasses Rum Sauce Cornmeal Porridge with Sautéed Carrots & Bacon Shaved Salt Cured Beef, Sauerkraut, Melted Cheddar on a Split Sour Milk Biscuit Dandyfunk (Smashed biscuits with pork fat & molasses) CAPTAINS Rusk Bread Poor John Cod Cakes with “Limey” Mayo Shaved Apple, Carrot Salad with Currants and Molasses Vinaigrette Madeira Braised Mutton with Turnips, Carrots, Bacon Hash and Currant Studded Rice Duff (warm pudding with dried plums) Tickets: SINGLE Ticket: $60 per Trustees member and $75 per nonmember.

  • Mixology Class with Saxtons River Distillery

    Learn how to create craft cocktails using local spirits made right here in New England! Each cocktail will be made using Saxtons River Distillery liquors paired with fresh ingredients from Boston Public Market vendors to create signature flavors. The Mixology Class will be a step-by-step demonstration introducing proper mixology techniques that participants can then use at home. The class will be formatted as follows: The mixologist will discuss the spirits and the process of distilling, blending and aging Saxtons River spirits. The mixologist will then demonstrate proper mixology techniques and will discuss flavor profiles, pairing suggestions, and presentation. Next, the mixologist will demonstrate step-by-step cocktail building and will provide tips and tricks to creating a craft local cocktail. And finally, participants will get to sample each of the cocktails created and the group will discuss the different flavor profiles and how you can adapt those flavors to individual preferences. Along with the cocktails we will also be tasting locally-made bread from Somerville Bread Co. and Massachusetts cheeses from Appleton Farms. Dates: Saturday, May 20th | 5:30-7:00 pm Saturday, June 24th | 5:30-7:00 pm Saturday, July 22th | 5:30-7:00 pm About Saxtons River Distillery Saxtons River Distillery was founded in 2006 by Christian Stromberg. He started out in his barn in the small town of Saxtons River creating Sapling Maple Liqueur using a family recipe for a Lithuanian honey liqueur. We will be using several of their spirits during the Mixology Class. Sapling Maple Bourbon & Sapling Maple Rye Whiskies: Using locally sourced VT Maple Syrup, Christian truly created “VT in a bottle”. He then expanded his spirit line to include Sapling Maple Bourbon and Sapling Maple Rye whiskies. All three Sapling products are blended and aged to perfection. Three years in American #3 charred oak barrels for the bourbon, two for the rye and 3 months for the liqueur. Sapling uses only locally sourced, traditional wood fired dark VT Maple syrup from two local farmers or “sugarers”. Perc Coffee Liqueur: Christian then teamed with local coffee roasters Mocha Joe’s to create Perc Coffee Liqueur. This very unique coffee liqueur is very simply dark roasted cold brewed coffee, neutral spirit and pure cane sugar. Perc is smooth with a clean finish without any artificial flavorings, coloring or sweeteners. Christian wanted to let natural coffee shine through without the heavy, overly sweetened consistency that you find in other coffee liqueurs. Perfect for coffee cocktails as well as cooking with it’s all natural bold dark roasted coffee taste. Snowdrop Gin: Snowdrop Gin is Saxtons River Distillery’s newest release. Christian had always wanted to create a botanic American Dry gin. After three years of research and development, he and head distiller Ivan Hennessy found the perfect balance between flavor and smoothness. Snowdrop consists of eighteen botanic ingredients, it is also uniquely vacuum distilled. Vacuum distillation allows the temperature to be dropped in the still, so flavor isn’t boiled off. We create an atmospheric vacuum to draw the raw spirit through our ground botanics, capturing the flavors without any perfumey or overly floral notes. Snowdrop also has a very unique smooth finish, there isn’t the overly dry notes that people usually associate with gin.
